More mysteries in this episode. So, we start out with an elaboration on the battle that happened at the end of the last episode. Once again, Kuuko drags Aki away from the battle while he’s unconscious. Meanwhile, Kyouhei manages to walk in on Hibino and Utao while they’re bathing, which makes Hibino mad at him. The next day, Hibino hears from Kuuko that she found a link to the Dolls (although she doesn’t say that specifically). She tells Kyouhei and they meet with Utao to rush over to Kuuko’s home. In the meantime, Kuuko is interrogating Aki, who she’s tied up. However, Aki gets annoyed and uses his Doll to break free. As Kuuko is running off, Kyouhei and the gang show up. Aki reveals that Hibino has a resemblance to his and Kyouhei’s old sensei, which angers Kyouhei. Kyouhei proceeds to beat Aki senselessly, causing Aki to say that the two of them are alike, making Kyouhei hit him more. Aki escapes, though, and Kyouhei and Utao give chase. Kyouhei starts punching a wall in anger, but Hibino arrives to stop him and comfort him. However, Utao runs into the strange boy from last episode, who reveals that he is actually her (hopefully this gets elaborated next episode). She attacks him, but he easily beats Kukuri. He then meets up with Kyouhei, calling him brother as the episode ends. I’m liking this idea of the village keeping secrets and everything, but there’s so much mystery that I still feel like I’m in the dark. But the series is just starting, so I can’t expect to know everything. Still, the mystery is doing a pretty good job at keeping me interested. Can’t wait for the next one.
